They were supposed to get a shipment of Bburagos the day I went there to pick up the Pullman and were going to get a shipment of AAs today. Any updates?

Hey Farid

If you go through this thread you'll find some pictures of my Mercedes collection. Iv been thinking of concentrating on only Mercs but Iv scrapped that idea as of now. Id love to see pictures of your collection.

Cheers

Btw incase anyone wants to get rid of anything 1:18, let me know. Id be more than glad to buy it off you.

The only answer is Kyosho or even Auto Art. The Bburago Miura is not that great in detail plus it has horrible chrome wheels. This is what I think, which is why I paid a little more and got the one made by Anson. I dont think you get Miuras by Anson anymore.
